Notes / Commercial Description:
La Trappe Dubbel has a deep brown colour and attractive beige froth. The use of caramel malt gives it a gentle aromatic caramelised quality. It has a rich malty flavour with a touch of sweetness.

A big fan of Trappist Dubbel’s. Beautiful large bottle with a cork. No date on label. Poured into a chalace Westmalle glass that I purchased in Amsterdam. The fluffy white head faded quickly. The color is a rich looking dark brown. The taste is semi-sweet, nice carbonation and bread flavors. Overall a great example of the Trappist style.

Pours a deep reddish brown with thick, fine foam.

Smell is sweet, with notes of raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves.

Taste is sweet and rich. Raisins, plums, spices and a hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a classic dubbel, rich and still easy to drink.

Dark brown with a rocky, 2 fingers of beige head.

Smells of cherries, dark fruits, and molasses.

The taste follows the nose, in a nice, almost perfect balance for a dubbel.

Medium body, slightly syrupy feel. Highly carbonated.

Classic beer I've had many times. This bottle I bought in China over 3 years ago, and have been cellaring it in New Hamburg, ON, where I am drinking it July 7th, 2018.

Pours amber brown with decent head and minimal lacing. Smells of dark bread and caramel malts. Taste is same with heavier notes of caramel malts and a bit of creaminess on the tongue. Overall, great beer but not quite as great as the others I’ve had from them.

From the 740 ml bottle in a snifter. This nice dubbel pours a reddish brown
color with nice clarity and a very nice head of off white foam that settles to a
thick ring, nice clumping pool, and shows some nice light sudsy lacing. nose of
light cocoa, some subtle cola and dark sugar notes notes, light raisin, subtle earthy
malts, and light floral attributes. The taste is much as the nose with a floral note swathed
in drown sugar and more of a date flavor than raisin with hints of cocoa mingling nicely
with cola touches of cherry and light cranberry on the rear of the taste. Very nice mouth
feel that is lightly airy with carbonation and yeast notes that blend nicely into a medium
light body and a lightly sweet with a hint of dark fruit finish.

Overall, another fine ale from a fantastic brewery.

Cheers!

Poured from just over fridge temp and allowed to warm. Pours a nice dark golden reddish brown with great head. Nose is caramel, malts, wood, and dark fruit (cherries mostly). Taste is really great. Slight bitterness upfront. Nice caramel, wheat, bark, and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall, a great dubbel.

Very nice brew. The smell is extraordinary. Reminds me on apples in a cellar. No bitterness in the initial taste. Almost like a nicely balanced a apple pie. No alcoholic after taste at all.

If you like Belgian doubles. This is the One.

Look: It pours dark amber with some reddish hues. It has moderate head retention that is tan. It is also fairly clear.

Smell: The initial aromas are malty rich with some fruit. Apples and dried cherries and prominent with some toast and a hint of chocolate. There are some rose like aromas in addition to the above.

Taste: The apples and dried cherries are very prominent in the initial flavor with a bit of toast and low caramel in support. There is a bit of low floral in the background and very low raisin flavors. The balance is fairly even.

Feel: It has a medium body with medium carbonation and some alcohol warmth that is smooth.

Overall, it is a pleasant fruity-malty beer with depth and complexity especially in the fruit.
